Hot flashes in teen years?



Is it possible to get hot flashes in your teen years or am I just imagining something? Is it just a hormone thing? Is it not a hot flash that I am experiencing? Is it just being over heated?


In premenopausal women the most common experience of hot flashes is right around the time of the menstrual period when estrogen levels drop.  Many women also experience them after childbirth - again because of the drop in estrogen levels.  If you are getting unexplained hot flashes (not related to exercise and getting too hot), check with your physician.
